I'm going to say this is a respect issue and has taking advantage of you.

Find a trainer to help you. And stop taking his crap. Get after him.

He needs a Come To Jesus meeting. Make him fear for his life and demand he respects you.

He's just going to continue to walk all over you.

CLaporte432 I can't afford a trainer but I will change my way and make him come to terms with whose boss

He is right on top of your head.
Watch some videos on how to gain respect from the horse, how to be more consistent.
He sounds like a brat that needs to stand away from his buddies for a long time, safely tied or stalled, to make him realise nothing will happen on his demands. Of course, rule out any pain by a vet, but at the moment he might even be dangerous for the vet.
Do not let him get away with anything else, or soon you will have a very dangerous horse..

He is being tied up each day now AWAY from other horses.

Apparently his sire had a mean streak
In him I think it was given to chance as well

I had a vet out and it's and inflammation around the spine.
He is going to have some massage therapy done
